Mead is widely believed to be one of the, if not the oldest mass-produced alcoholic beverage in the world. Records of its consumption stretch back to 3,000 B.C. where it was brewed in the Henan province of China. At its heart is a simple recipe – fermented honey and water. Today it has had something of a renaissance (which actually started in the 1960s) and there are meads that boast incredible complexity of taste due to the many different types of fruits or spices that can be added to the mix.
